Hey world - Interested in responsible travel and ecotourism and the local travel movement? Here are tips on using social web channels including Facebook, Flickr, Flipboard, Slideshare, Twitter and YouTube.

Need some help?- Our general Social Web Workshop is available on demand ...

Creating relevant communities for those interested in 'better travel for a better world' is the challenge at hand. Flickr, Google+, Twitter and Facebook can be used if we know how to manage the tools effectively.

The following table charts what you can constructively do with a few of our favorite tools. We invite you to be creative and to be generous. Suggestions are welcome. Editors, please help with clarifying the actions and translating the table into español.

Quotes

Tools don't get socially interesting until they get technologically boring.
- Clay Shirky

A revolution doesn't happen when society adopts new tools, it happens when society adopts new behaviors.
- Clay Shirky

When things become digital, the cost of copying, distributing and storing go to near zero. How we will leverage these tools?
- Cable Green @cgreen

We shape our tools and thereafter our tools shape us.
- Marshall McLuhan, 1964

A tool box with a single hammer is useless.- Conversation
Social media is just...I hate to say, but it's just another tool in the toolbox. You know, we've got traditional media, we've got very extensive campaigns through traditional print media, advertising, radio, we do a huge amount at a local level through our districts and brigades, and we've got over 69,000 volunteers across the state, and every time they go out in the truck or they're engaging with their community they are educating, they are building their resilience, they're forming those really amazing relationships where during emergencies we can go out and I suppose exchange information with them.
- Lew Short, Emergencies, disasters and the role of digital technology

Mixing it up

Many of the participants in the web workshop ask which is the best tool to which we answer, which is the best color? Which is your best finger? The tools don't compete with one another as much as they provide some clever ways to integrate the technologies. Just as blue and yellow make green, skype + youtube can yield some helpful web tutorials. Flickr + TripAdvisor = TripWow!

More about the Web Tool Survey

The objective of our Web Tools Survey is to create a snapshot of practical applications and gaging which tools are best suited for specific purposes, particularly in the realm of responsible travel, ecotourism and conservation. We would like to know which web tools you find the most useful ... and which tools you'd like to learn. Here are the initial results

Misc

We tend to use the tools we know. There is an old joke about how someone lost a quarter in their garage, then looks out in the yard for it. A neighbor asks why they are looking there instead of in the garage. Response: The light is better in the yard
